Young Marxists Greet Laura Bush in Rhode Island

Young Marxists and Anti-war activists greeted Laura Bush at a Providence fund raiser for Senator Lincoln Chafee, the Rhode Island senator who voted against tax cuts and her husband, George Bush, in the 2004 election.

Many of the protesters outside the event were there to protest against the War in Iraq… Chafee also voted against the War in Iraq:

More than a dozen protestors carrying signs chanted outside the Biltmore Hotel as Bush spoke. Chafee voted against going to war, but it made little difference to protest leader Shaun Joseph, 26, a graduate student at the University of Rhode Island.

“Anyone who’s for the war, we’ll protest,” he said, and included Chafee.

Nothing much about this story made any sense…
-Not the fact that Laura Bush would be supporting Lincoln Chafee
-Not the fact that Lincoln Chafee would ask for her support
-Not the fact that anti-war protesters were outside a Chafee fundraiser
-Not the fact that Republicans would be so terribly afraid they would lose his senate seat


About the only thing that made sense is that this is another antiwar protest where the organizer and anti-war activist Shaun Joseph, is a raging Marxist.
